A soldier from Fort Carson, Colorado, died Saturday from a gunshot wound that was not combat-related, Army officials confirmed Monday.

Spc. Adrian Perkins, 19, of Pine Valley, California, died at King Hussein Hospital in Amman, Jordan, according to information released by the Fort Carson public affairs office.

Investigators are still trying to determine the details of the incident, but officials confirmed there were no Jordanians involved, the public affairs office said.

Perkins, who joined the Army in August 2012, was assigned to 1st Battalion, 67th Armor Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, at Fort Carson.

The brigade deployed last fall to the Central Command area of operations.
